Beauty of Mathematics

"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music." —Betrand Russell

Physics is, in essence, applied mathematics. It's how math applies to life, and the results thereof. And math is... beauty? That's not how one would usually think. However, there is a certain beauty to math and how everything resolves itself when it is applied. The way tree growth and snowflakes resemble fractals, light waves follow the simplicity of a sine curve, a top wobbles back and forth, light bends around a magnifying glass - heck, we learned some of these last year in physics B. But while analyzing the theory behind it, how many of us stepped back to think of the beauty?

However I explain it, watching it makes it better.

I love how there can be so many perspectives to the same occurrence. For example, in the clip of the computer screen, the binary is the most basic level of code. The desktop is deciding whether or not to light up a pixel. In the middle, the perspective is from the developer of whatever is being shown on the screen. On the right, the end product is shown to the user of the computer, and that perspective is shown, and everything is happening simultaneously.
